only a few seconds ago did i read that such a thing existed and had attacked a woman swimming in the beach. but that particular beach was about 45 miles away from a crocodile sanctuary. however, i just thought of sharing information here. nowhere would my son (i hope) go near any beach. i'd have a pool built if need be. if whales can get lost at sea how can we be sure crocodiles can't?

In the tropical region of Australia there are crocodiles and I have seen them. There were at the Daintree River north of Cairns. One baby crocodile was washed down to one of the beaches at Cairns. A lady had her foot bitten. There are nets to stop stinging box jellyfish on those beaches. I have heard a saltwater crocodile can be large and very dangerous. A fresh water crocodile is smaller and less dangerous. I went to Kakadu National Park there are lots of saltwater crocodiles there. In the wet season Twin Twin Falls on reachable due to the rain. Before the first trip in the dry season crocodiles are taken out of it. One year one of them was left there. The first set of tourists were bathing and the crocodile was seen! They all rushed out of the water. Luckily nobody was killed. I read that salt water crocodiles can be found up to 150 km in land. They can live in saltwater or freshwater.

thank you for that very informative response. but i guess if it is one's time to go it is really one's time to go. the manner of how this is is the only difference. i hope this never happens to anyone i know.
